Bloody luv mine
engine is a peach and the howl from triple is addictive, panniers quite small but you can filter with em, fjr ones fit, suspension fine for me, screen ok, some hate it.
Had S10, gs800, s800 for previous 10 years and loved twins but triple is perfect balance between 2 and 4, did I mention the howl

I have put a modest 2800 miles on my (new)900 GT since mid August and am thoroughly enjoying it.
Have a look on here.

The OEM panniers are small at 22litres each but they do fit very neatly.
In my opinion the seat is dire but so far that's my only real complaint.
The menu wheel switch is a pain in the Ari's tho !
My fuel consumption overall is around 55mls to a gallon.

I love it, and yes it goes like stink. They are different beasts, I used to get a sore arse after an hrs riding on the ATAS, but the Tracer I feel like I can ride all day. The cruise control, is great, the quick shift is great fun and the TFT screen is very clear. Needs a couple of bits added to it and it would be a perfect high powered commuter.
Self cancelling indicators would be good
And a bigger tank, even a couple of litres more.
Already got a larger PUIG screen which is so much better.
But I love the thing. Top marks to Yamaha.
